Follow us on LinkedIn – Automotive industry is one of the early adopters of remanufacturing, where used auto parts like engines, transmissions, starter motors, alternators, clutches, steering racks, turbochargers, cylinder heads and brake calipers are remanufactured through a series of processes for the purpose of reuse. Remanufactured automotive products present huge economic benefits as compared to new manufactured products and therefore have come under the spotlight in recent years. Since it does not involve actual production of new products, remanufacturing demands very little raw material, energy and other production inputs thus reducing the environmental impact of production. Additionally, the process of salvaging and restoring majority of end of life automotive parts which would otherwise end up in landfills, augments the attractiveness of this production model.
The auto parts remanufacturing market is cyclical in nature, with strong demand for remanufactured products seen during periods of economic slowdown, while demand tends to be weak during economic boom. Besides economic trends, number of vehicles on roads, average age of vehicle fleet, and number of miles traveled also influence demand for remanufactured auto parts and components. Against the backdrop of expanding vehicle fleet and increasing average life of vehicles plying on road, attractive potential exists for remanufactured auto parts in the upcoming years. Increasing average life of vehicles across the world is especially spewing opportunities for the market as it results in greater need for refurbishments and repairs. Production of remanufactured automotive parts and components is increasingly migrating to low cost destinations such as Asia-Pacific and Eastern Europe due to the availability of low cost labor in many of these countries.
Unlike in the developed countries where a wide range of components are produced, remanufacturing activities in emerging regions has predominantly been limited to less complex parts such as alternators and starters due to dearth in technology know-how. Owing to the surge in demand for diesel engines, remanufactured diesel engines are displaying relatively strong growth. Increasing replacement rates for transmission systems, particularly in hybrid and electric vehicles is presenting a strong business case for remanufactured transmissions.
Encouraged by the immense untapped opportunities in the remanufacturing business, automotive OEMs are increasingly venturing into the market. Remanufacturing enables auto OEMs to compete against low-cost manufacturers and to also support their commitment to corporate social responsibility.
